Complete confusion and beauty


“I have so many different personalities in me and I still feel lonely.”, Tori Amos

So many people are affected with mental illness and rarely share, which hurts us as a population. As the quote above states “I have so many different personalities in me and I still feel lonely.” It a true representation of many affected or dealing with someone fighting, coping, or dealing with those personalities. We are all lonely. Starving for affection, attention, acknowledgment.
So many people need to be accepted even those who have been accepted.

Makes you think a bit about how money and success influences happiness.  You truly do not need money or success to be happy. You only need yourself. I still hold on to true love… you need yourself and true love 😉

I can be hot and cold….so true love is reality, but it burns a delicate flame like a candle. I want to keep it in a box for fear of a draft. But it’s really impossible to protect a flame from the elements. So I have to burn hot and pray those who love me protect their flame from my draft. In return, I hope they shelter the light I provide and the flames aren’t extinguished, but passed on candle to candle.

  1. I love how you have explained it. And yet those of us on the other side of the fence – I was a mental health nurse for almost 30 years can be just as, “mad” I remember one fairly old school psychiatrist listening to a clinical assistant (Junior doctor who has decided not to take the exams to become a consultant in UK) talking about different possible diagnoses. He would always include, “Personality Disorder” as part of his list.

    The consultant said one of the wisest things I ever heard him say, “Well if it comes to it, we all have personality disorders but what is the actual problem?” Another consultant I worked with more recently didn’t use that diagnosis but would instead use the phrase, “Complex Trauma.” This to me is a much better description.
